A high performing luxury Ford Mustang was taken into custody today by the Financial Crimes Investigation Division (FCID).
According to FCID, the ‘high performing’ car is believed to have been originally owned by Parliamentarian Namal Rajapaksa who had later sold it. Rajapaksa is currently out on bail over a money laundering case.
During the run up to the Presidential Election in January last year, the then opposition accused Rajapaksa’s sons of owning expensive racing cars as well as expensive horses from royal stables in the UK and helicopters. An allegation flatly denied by Namal Rajapaksa, who is the eldest son of former President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
